Announcing the Yugntruf Zhurnal Writing Contest
From Yugntruf (Youth for Yiddish): the Yugntruf Zhurnal Writing Contest:
Are you the next Sholem Aleichem or Avrom Sutzkever?
We’re looking for young emerging Yiddish writers and poets who need a modern literary platform suited to their unique voices.
That’s because Yugntruf – Youth for Yiddish is reviving its Zhurnal – its Yiddish-language literary journal of poetry, short stories, editorials and articles.
Debuting this August 2012, our new Zhurnal, co-edited by Jordan Kutzik and Leyzer Burko, will be available to Yugntruf members and to subscribers worldwide in both full-color hard copy and online download.
So, if you’re 35 years of age or younger, you’re invited to submit your original, unpublished Yiddish poetry or fiction to our ZHURNAL YIDDISH LITERATURE COMPETITION to win cash awards — and publication in our new Zhurnal!
Yugntruf is also accepting original photography, graphics and artwork by young visual artists for our new Zhurnal. Please send all submissions (black and white or color) in jpg or tiff format to [email protected].
For more information, email us at [email protected].
Express yourself in mame-loshn to a global audience of readers, and help us foster a new generation of Yiddish writers!
